Pack Events Through The Year
Monthly Pack and Den Meetings
Our whole Pack meets once per month at our Charter organization, Cambrian Park United Methodist Church. Pack meetings are open to family and friends, and are a time to celebrate and reward the achievements our Scouts have accomplished during the month.
Scouts are organized into Dens of boys or girls in the same grade. Dens meet with their leaders twice each month to have fun and work on Scout advancement.
Pack 374 has an active Hiking program. We try to organize at least one hike every month, and we vary the difficulty level to appeal to different hiking abilities within the Pack. By participating, scouts can earn their official Pack 374 hiking stick!
Our big summer event is Pack 374 Family Camp, usually held at one of the local scout reservations in the Santa Cruz mountains. Open to families and siblings, we have a weekend of fun activities, great food, service activities, and an evening campfire.
Right after school starts, we hold our annual fund raiser, selling popcorn! Scouts can travel door-to-door to sell in their neighborhood, or sign up to sell in front of neighborhood stores. Proceeds from popcorn sales help us run a fun-filled program throughout the year!
After back-to-school and popcorn sales, our Pack holds a picnic and Raingutter Regatta event at a local park. Scouts assemble and decorate boats that are raced down long tracks of water.
January is host to one of our biggest and most fun activities: the Pinewood Derby! Scouts make wooden cars to race down a track. May the best car win!
Blue and Gold Banquet
In February we have a special Pack Meeting with dinner, desserts, and lots of fun.
In the spring, we hold an event at one of the local facilities that runs scouting overnighter. In recent years we have stayed on board the USS Hornet and the Pampanito.
Summer Day Camps
The Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council holds day camp events throughout the summer. Many of our scouts participate, where they learn scout skills, archery and BB guns, play games, and perform den cheers and skits. Camps are held in a variety of locations in the area.
Other Cub Scout Activities
Scouts in the Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council are making a positive impact in our communities through a variety of fun and challenging experiences. Activity opportunities are endless, and can be organized by any group from the Den up through the Council.
Our District and Council plan events that our Scouts may participate in as Dens or as individuals. Popular events include BB Gun and Archery Shootouts and summer scouting Day Camps.
